I love the woven bag. It's really beautiful. I really need to figure out how to set up my loom so I can start weaving too! The batts are also beautiful!

Oh wow, I adore that package. Being new to weaving I just fall in love with everyone's projects! I'm so jealous (in a good way, lol) about not being able to blend fiber so wonderfully. *someday* Those colors are gorgeous.

This has been such a sweet gallery so far! I can't wait to see the rest!!

I'm glad you like them l2e!  SewMama .. practice ... and don't overblend is the trick to those batts Smiley I use prepped fibers and just run them through once or twice depending on how much blending I want.
